Product Description

The complete first season of the TV series Touched By An Angel.


Touched by an Angel wasn't the first TV show with a heavenly theme, but it set a new standard for a compassionate portrayal of Christian themes on television. Roma Downey, with flowing brunette locks and a soft Irish lilt, plays Monica, a divine case-worker sent from town to town to lend an angelic hand. Sometimes it's as simple as helping a dying man reach out to those he loves before it's too late; sometimes she has to face the Devil himself--in the closing episode of the first season, Monica is sent to make sure an AIDS hospice opens despite the opposition of white supremacists being led by Satan (played by John Schneider, formerly of The Dukes of Hazzard). Earthy Della Reese plays Tess, Monica's supervisor, who takes an active role in quite a few cases. Touched by an Angel is unlikely to persuade dubious viewers to join the faith, but though all episodes resolve themselves through the intervention of God and his divine messengers, the show's view of humanity has hope and dignity.

Touched by an Angel also features an impressive array of guest stars, ranging from country music star Randy Travis to Academy Award winner Cloris Leachman (The Last Picture Show) to Marion Ross (Happy Days); one episode, about a radio talk-show host fighting with her teenage daughter, features Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina the Teenage Witch), James Marsden (X-Men), and Jack Black (School of Rock), all before their careers took off. Touched by an Angel: The Complete First Season has the first 13 episodes from 1994-95 and, as a bonus, the two-part series finale from 2003. --Bret Fetzer

This show was unique and cutting edge. It dared to tell and show people how much God loved them each and every episode. It is about time it is available on DVD in complete season formats.

It is a show that you can set down with your family and watch and not worry about content. It is a great way to open dialogue about God. The fact that it didn't attach itself to one paritcular religion is what makes it's appeal wide. It touches on subjects like alzhiemers, racism, alcoholism, drugs, teen issues, depression, AIDS, suicide, internet preditors, and many more topics that when watching with your family it can open a dialogue on these issues too.

This should be a must buy for anyone with family that wants something to watch with the kids. It is a must buy for the individual that wants to be reminded that God does love them even with their human faults.

The guest star line up is like a who's who in Hollywood. Bill Cosby, Randy Travis, Patty Duke, Priscilla Presley, Wynonna Judd, Celine Dion, Mandy Patinkin, Cloris Leachman, and etc. etc.

The regular cast that consists of Della Reese as Tess, Roma Downey as Monica, and John Dye as Andrew work so well together as a team and individually that you forget that they aren't really angels, yet makes you hope that there just might be angels like these.

I just hope that seasons 2-9 will also be offered thru Amazon so people like me can have our show back again, even if we have already seen the shows. They are just as good the second time around.

Having finally bought my very own copy of Touched By An Angel, the complete first season on DVD yesterday, I'm happy to report that it's still every bit as wonderful and relevant as it was in the initial broadcast. As a 50+ year-old military retiree, I'm happy to say that I love this show and never missed an episode in the 9 years it was on, though it makes me tear up from time to time. Some of the episodes I've viewed multiple times on tape. Since I usually work night shift, I always had to record the show in order to watch it, but it was well worth the time to do so.

It's too bad that the television producers don't know how to come up with more wonderful family-oriented programs like this one. The show's producers, directors, writers and especially Roma Downey should have won multiple Emmys, but you know how Hollywood works. The lowest common denominator gets all the kudos. A special 'thank you' goes out to the executive producer, Martha Williamson, without whom this show would have been impossible.

Though I've had my first generation Philips DVD player since they were introduced in 1997, I've only bought one other TV series on DVD, which was Smallville, another well-written series that can be viewed together with your family. In 2005, we have a total of 7 DVD-capable units in our household - including 2 computer-mounted, a portable, a PS2 and a DVD recorder - but still a dearth of quality TV shows.

Touched By An Angel is the only other one that is worth buying, and I'm certainly glad that I did.

Consider this DVD set a worthy investment that you will not regret!

PARAMOUNT: Please keep releasing all of the seasons! Thanks!

One final note: I believe that angels are real and can appear in any form at any time. Of course they can't all be blessed with the perfectly-cast winsomeness of Roma Downey.

I don't know what happened to all the reviews we had for this program but here is a new one! For nine years we were blessed with the most wonderful, edifying and inspirational family drama ever to grace television. This ranks tops above "Little House", "The Waltons", etc. Why? Because God had his hand on the program and defied all obstacles and odds to become one of the biggest hits in the history of CBS. FOr years it was the #1 drama on CBS...until some idiot decided to change it from its Sunday night family slot to Saturday nights (a night when no one watches television anymore) and the ratings plummeted....through no fault of the show or its producers. This show could have gone on forever and thanks to DVD it will!! Just release all 9 seasons!! This one will sell like hotcakes....especially from those of us who are tired of garbage on the shelves like "Sex and the City", "West Wing", "The Sopranos", "Will and Grace", "Friends".....all trash!! Its about time we get back on track with the good morals and standards this show gives us!! Thank you so much! When it is released I'll be the first in line to buy!! You can take that to the bank.

Update: It is now August 31, 2004 and I bought my set today at WalMart. I was NOT disappointed. It is everything I hoped for and more!! Lots of extras including Martha Williamson's interview on 60 minutes, the series finale (which I hope is not a portent toward them not releasing the rest of the seasons). The images are clear, the color is beautiful and of course the episodes from the first season are all first rate, my favorite being "There But For the Grace of God", which ranks among my top five TBAA episodes! I urge everyone to get out and buy this and tell other TBAA fans also so that we can get season II out there as quickly as possible!! Bravo!!
